The best surgeon I have ever used. His pain control,bedside manner,everything was phenomenal! Neck is pain free now!
in Huntsville, AL |
Was very impressed by Dr. Murray. He was patient, went over options, very kind and took his time making sure my questions were answered. Would definitely recommend.
in Killen, AL |
Dr. Murray preformed 2 major authors on my back. The last one was for a spinal fusion. I could have not asked for a better caring experience from him and his staff. I have referred multiple people to him and they were well pleased. His expertise was amazing. No post op complications. I would trust him for recommendations as well. Great experience!
in Huntsville, AL |
Horrible beside manner, rude, arrogant, misdiagnoses issues, doesn't answer questions, doesn't listen to patient concerns, has no medical ethics, doesn't help patients when they are in pain and need his medical help. Known to discharge patients without telling them, even when the patient is having complications, and dumps the patient on their primary physician. Dr. Rhett Murray doent care, he's out to make money.
in Owens Cross Roads AL |
Dr. Murray is a fantastic professional and provider in addition to being a highly skilled neurosurgeon. I've lived in chronic pain for 10 years and Dr. Murray reversed that in a two-hour surgery.
